In the event of an incident, we do our utmost to restore gas supplies as quickly as possible. However, after the first 24 hours, affected householders will be compensated for time without gas. You will receive £30 for each 24-hour period without gas, which is paid automatically through your gas supplier. Small businesses will receive £50 for each 24-hour period without gas, which will also be paid automatically through your gas supplier.
For business customers only, compensation can be claimed for loss of gross profit and not loss of takings, subject to your claim meeting the criteria in The Gas (Street Works) (Compensation of Small Business) Regulations 1996.
